After spending one year and nine months behind the bars in Dubai and Sweden, local businessman and socialite Sulaiman Kabangala alias SK Mbuga returned to Uganda last Saturday, and said he is going to face off with the Ugandan mafias who led to his arrest and prosecution in Sweden.
Talking to journalists on Monday from his Konge-Buziga residence, SK Mbuga alleged that the mafias here, some of them using government positions, were issuing wild allegations and some planted cooked up stories on social media with intent to grab his properties and money.
“While in court in Sweden a state prosecutor there named Ugandans, some of them using their positions in government, who claimed I had stolen money amounting to Swedish Kronor 53 million (about 23 billion) from a one Sten Heinsoo, which allegation had no backing, Ironically, when court pressed the prosecutor to produce the so-called complainant [Heinsoo] he was pulled out of jail and confessed to court that he did not only not know me, but he had never dealt with me” Mbuga said joyfully.
“The police made me record a statement and detained me for one year and one month without producing me to court until I wrote to the parliamentary Speaker Rebbeca Aritwala Kadaga, through Uganda’s Ambassador to Denmark Zake Kibedi. The former responded by sending me Hon. Okello Oryem; that when I was transferred to Sweden in an illegal way because they drove me by road through Denmark without my passport being stamped,” narrated Mbuga.
